Asia Map, 1873

The British possessions are in pink or have a red line underneath them in the case of islands and ports. It shows that British interest in the Malay peninsular is still restricted to Penang and Singapore. It recognises growing French interest in Vietnam. There are some useful distances given for journeys between important ports.
